We stayed 2 nights, great location in Lyon, short walk to the old quarter across the river, and in a good shopping area. The room was clean, nice bathroom and well equipped with a large tv, kettle, safe and shelves. Lovely big drapes over the Windows. The hallway was very groovy and there is a small lift available. The staff... More

We were welcomed by lovely staff, who could also speak very good English. The attendant was friendly and efficient; the room, although small, was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The location is also very good. I highly recommend this hotel.

We were impressed by the helpfulness of the staff with restaurant recommendations, reservations, suggestions for sightseeing. The room had good air-conditioning (even on the top floor) that we controlled, and was quiet at night. Although the exterior is anonymous and the hallways stuffy, the room itself had massive tall windows and doors that lent a spacious, rather elegant feeling. The... More

This hotel is really well located for exploring Lyon but the rooms and facilities need some updates. The walls are so thin that we could hear people moving and talking in the next room. The rooms are small and cluttered so it was difficult to place suitcases and move around the room. The bathroom towels are so thin you can... More

This hotel is well located with regard to shopping and a nearby 'eat street', as well as the theatre from which it takes its name. The entry door is between two shop fronts and can be easy to miss. Reception is on the level above, via stairs or the lift. The lift is quite small, and takes a maximum of... More

The boutique hotel, although quite old and not an impressive entrance (need to take lift or stairs to first floor reception) was a quaint and a comfortable stay for 3 nights in Lyon. It was very clean and even though we chose the smaller room the bathroom worked quite well with storage. Breakfasts were well organised and it was located... More
